Sequence


Copyright 1994 by Jax Ltd. For 2-12 players, ages 7 and up. Takes about 15 minutes to play. This is a really great family game. Just about any number of players can play (except, oddly enough, five). It's very easy to learn (even if you've never played before it'll take you about 2 minutes to read the rules and learn how). Kids (even very young kids) can dive right in, and the strategy is compelling enough to entertain people of all ages. Truly a perfect game for the whole family. Each of the 52 cards in a deck of playing cards (except for the Jacks) appears twice on the board. Each player is dealt 6 or 7 cards. A player's turn consists of drawing a card, choosing one of the cards they've been dealt and placing one of their markers on the corresponding spot on the board (one-eyed jacks remove a marker from the board and two-eyed jacks can be placed on any spot on the board). The object is to score a sequence (five markers in a row either horizontally, vertically or diagonally). I know it sounds dead simple, but it's surprisingly compelling. If you're looking for something to play with the family, pick up a copy of Sequence.
